The N.V. Fine Tawny is amber brown with flavors of intertwined dates, figs, and chocolate. It is well balanced and has a long, pure finish.

The dark-amber-hued Premium Fine Tawny offers sumptuous notes of spice box, Christmas pudding, figs, brown sugar, and molasses.

Rutherglen is ground zero for one of Australia’s great treasures, old fortified Muscats and Tokays (actually Muscadelle), and Buller’s offerings are brilliant examples of these wines. A knock-out, the medium garnet-colored non-vintage Premium Fine Tawny reveals smoky, spicy, nutty notes intermixed with caramel and marmalade characteristics. These Australian treasures are fabulous to drink at the end of a meal. Moreover, once opened, they will hold for several weeks, sometimes longer.

Red-tinged brown. Spicy red berries, cherry pit and toffee on the nose. fleshy, sweet pit fruit and dried cherry flavors stain the palate, with notes of mace and white pepper providing lift. A very fresh style, with strong finishing cut and a lingering burnt sugar quality.

Bright amber. Fig, molasses and spice cake on the nose, with delicate notes of honey and coriander. Light on its feet, even delicate, with a transparency of candied apple and poached pear flavor. It would be difficult to find a better bargain than this in Victoria tawny.

Smooth, open and only lightly sweet, layering its smoky, spicy white pepper and cherry flavors in appropriate balance. Flavors finish with subtlety. Drink now.

Dark amber in color, this still shows its red-grape origins in vaguely berry-like scents and flavors. Hints of chocolate and caramel provide a sweet touch to this supple, medium-bodied fortified. Finishes peppery and warm.

Although still a respectable effort, this is a weak link in the Buller arsenal of fortifieds, with a minty, slightly medicinal edge to the modest berry fruit and dark, earthy undercurrents. Turns tart and crisp on the finish.
